Build This Bike


The Wilson 275 has been completely revamped from the ground-up, making this one of the most exciting downhill bikes in Devinci's history. During the 2014 World Cup, we saw a changing of the guard. During the first half of the season, nearly everyone was riding 26" downhill bikes. Somewhere mid-season, it all seemed to change, and suddenly all the podium finishers were aboard prototype 27.5" downhill bikes. This was the first sign that downhill bikes sporting 27.5” wheels were coming our way - and now, they have arrived.

As you probably could have guessed, the Wilson 275 is rolling on 27.5" wheels, marking the first 27.5" downhill bike Devinci has produced. Steve Smith has been tearing up the races on prototype versions of this bike, and Devinci believe they have nailed the geometry and design of this bike, making the most of the new wheel size. As we mentioned earlier, this is a completely new Wilson. It has not just been tweaked to stuff 27.5" wheels into a frame designed for 26" wheels. Devinci knew that this would require a complete re-design of their proven Wilson chassis. The design of the bike still builds upon the same unique pull-link Split-Pivot suspension design. The shock placement has changed though, with the upper end now mounted to the downtube instead of the toptube. This keeps the center of gravity even lower than it was on the previous Wilson. Low center of gravity means more control through corners, and a more stable bike overall. The shock size has also been reduced from 10.5" x 3.5" to 9.5" x 3". With the larger wheel size, it became apparent that perhaps 8.5" of travel was a bit overkill. Travel has been reduced to 8" (204mm) from 8.5" (216mm) on the previous Wilson. This change not only saves weight by using a smaller shock, it also allowed the engineers to place that shock exactly where they needed. The shock is mounted to a similar rocker link as previously used, but it is now tucked up into the frame over the BB shell, which allowed Devinci to keep the chainstay relatively short, despite the larger wheel size. The resulting chainstay length on the Wilson 275 is roughly only 8mm longer than the previous 26" Wilson.

At the heart of the bike, the Wilson’s main pivot location delivers enhanced square-edged bump compliance, cornering feel, and pedaling performance. Dave Weagle's Split Pivot design delivers a transparent feel where suspension, braking, and acceleration work in harmony for a more efficient and fun ride. Embracing this balance, the Wilson provides a buttery smooth ride with explosive pedal power. The Wilson uses a unique splined ISCG '05 unit that seats onto the 83mm BB shell. It is fully removable from the frame, so it can be replaced at any time. This means you can use taco-style chainguides with no worries. If you manage to crack or bend your ISCG tab, you can simply pop it off and toss a new one on. This splined tab also allows you to fine tune chainguide alignment.

The Wilson uses a new post-mount 200mm rear brake tab, meaning only 200mm rear rotors are compatible with this bike. You can fit a 203mm if you install a couple of small washers between the brake caliper and the tab. Other bells and whistles include hydroformed frame tubing, a downtube skidplate, and internal swingarm derailleur cable routing.

The Wilson Alloy 275 frame comes stocked with the Rock Shox Vivid R2C rear shock, FSA Orbit Zero Stack headset, and a 12x150mm bolt-on rear axle.


  • Slit Pivot Suspension
    Dave Weagle’s patented Split Pivot technology. Today it represents the core of Devinci’s full-suspension line-up. The genius of the Split Pivot suspension system is that it works in conjunction with you—the rider—for intuitive performance and a fully customizable feel. It harmonizes and maximizes bump compliance, traction, and efficiency—factors that are normally at odds with each other. The result is a buttery smooth ride with hyperactive small bump compliance and podium-crushing pedal stroke efficiency. The system is called Split Pivot because of its concentric rear dropout pivot built in line with the rear wheel axle, but there’s more to it than that.

    The concentric rear dropout pivot, along with precise swing arm and linkage pivot placement, heightens performance to a level where rider action and bike reaction all meld into one. When you pedal, the bike rockets forward; when you corner, the bike nails your lines; when you brake, the bike maintains traction. Simple. Forget about shock lockouts, this superior blend of traction and efficiency heightens performance across all disciplines so you can focus on the ride.

    How Does Split Pivot Work?
    The beauty of the concentric dropout pivot design is that it separates acceleration forces from braking forces within the suspension system. This is achieved through precise pivot placement, whereby braking neutrality is tuned independently of acceleration characteristics. Suspension feel can be tuned by varying leverage ratio curves in a wide range of options to suit various riding disciplines.

    Split Pivot Testing and Tuning
    Designing a bike blueprint and manufacturing it from raw materials is only the first step in the process. In addition to cutting-edge features, rear shocks on Split Pivot models are custom tuned by Dave Weagle—in collaboration with world-class suspension manufacturers and skilled test pilots—to extract every last lick of traction, efficiency, and performance. This customized tuning is key to ensuring that every shock works in synchronicity with the Split Pivot, thus providing unreal feel and a ride you won’t want to quit.

  • Full Response Geometry
    FRG designs put riders in the best possible position on the bike. FRG bikes are quick and aggressive at lower speeds, demonstrate rock-solid stability at high speeds, and its low stand-over height gives bikes a nimble feel. Whether you're pedaling uphill or railing downhill singletrack, FRG guarantees precise handling and excellent power transfer. Devinci possesses possibly the best research and development minds in the bike industry. Years of experience testing competition mountain bikes and experimental rigs outfitted with cutting edge data-collecting instrumentation has lead to Full Response Geometry (FRG) engineering for cross-country frames, as well as FRG Adjustable tech for full-suspension mountain bikes.
